Cannes Film Festival 2010

So the film festival is over and we're still talking about the fashion from the red carpet.

Except Robin Hood I have no idea what other movie premiered at Cannes but I was more then excited to see the fashion on the red carpet! And boy was it an amazing sight.

We've see some daring outfits as usual, some wedding gowns (can't do without them) and some people who seemed to be there just for the paparazzi, but hey, if Paris Hilton wanted to show of a beautiful gown why not give her that opportunity?

So, even thought I had no idea what Kate Beckhinsale was doing in Cannes, as i checked IMDB she doesn't have a movie coming out (but i read she was a jury member), I still have to say she was number 1 on my best dress list.

She wore everyone, from Balmain, Ninna Ricci, Gianfranco Ferre', Christian Dior, Marchesa and Armani Prive and she looked absolutely gorgeous as always.

Jennifer Lopez's Roberto Cavalli ball gown was one of the most beautiful gowns of the festival but her hair and make-up were just not right.

Cheryl Cole in Versace... now that's a vision in white. Her hair was so beautiful yet casual and somehow she managed to pull of a good girl look in a too revealing dress.

Oh and the dress I would definitely love to have in my closet is Evangeline Lilly's Emilio Pucci. The combination of the two colors is just so right and so fabulous that it turned heads even though it wasn't as glamorous as the rest of the dresses we've seen. Just amazingly chic.

Check out the rest of the pics from the red carpet:

Dolce & Gabbana The One Campaign with Scarlet Johansson

Now that Dolce & Gabbana have made 3 campaigns for one line of perfume featuring Scarlet Johansson I can't make up my mind which mini-film I like the most.

They are all very special in their own way and Scarlet just looks flawless in every single one of them.

If it was another actress people would definitely get sick of her after the second add but somehow Scarlet pulled it off.
And they are fabulous!

Chanel Cruise 2011

A cruise collection is an inter-season or pre-season ready-to-wear line which is shown twice a year, spring/summer and fall/winter.
Originally meant for wealthy customers or "more seasoned jet-setters going on cruises", these days, they are targeted at customers who have "finished buying their fall wardrobes and are looking ahead to vacations".

Lines like this make only the creme de la creme of the fashion industry such as Chanel, Gucci, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren.

Well, May 11th Chanel presented their new 2011 cruise collection in Saint Tropez, France which featured models such as Karolina Kurkowa, Crystal Renn, Georgia May Jagger, Natasha Poly and many others.

Before the collection was presented Karl Lagerfeld debued his new 17-minute movie titled "Remember Now" which features Abbey Lee Kershaw as a Jane Birkin lookalike, Freja Beha Erichsen channeling Mick Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak emulating Brigitte Bardot.

Lagerfeld who wrote, directed, and makes a cameo in the film, said: “When I do a film, I see the movie before I’ve made it. I don’t make scripts because it’s written in my head. I like short one-liners.”

Well that figures since there was a guy in the movie who introduced himself as Milos from Yugoslavia. I am from Serbia and I have to say I was offended and surprised by his ignorance, taking the fact that Yugoslavia doesn't exist since 2003!

But whatever, some people never learn.

Here is the trailer of the movie which can be seen on YouTube:

And some pictures of the fashion show. For more pics click here:
